Summer Camp

 Summer Camp: About

Wonder and adventure await! Through Camp Stevens’s unique Adventure Group model, which offers a dynamic schedule, dozens of activity options, a 1:3 staff to camper ratio, and unparalleled access to nature (and away from screens!), no week at Camp Stevens is ever the same — and we love it that way! Whether playing a lawn game, on a sunset hike, or taking a shot at archery, every moment is an intentional opportunity to make friends, develop self-esteem and confidence, and safely experience the outdoors. Check out the daily schedule and sample menus, and be in touch with any questions about the one-of-a-kind Camp Stevens summer camp experience.
